Additional Information

Bearded Iris

A hardy perennial and fine cutflower, with multiple 3–6" blooms on each flower stalk. Strong sword-shaped foliage. Beards are soft hairs protruding up from the crest of each fall, often in contrasting colors. Awards listed are given by the American Iris Society.

Plant rhizomes horizontally, less than 1" deep, in clusters with new growth facing outward. Vigorous plants, so give them room to spread. They appreciate light soil and full sun, and require good drainage. May take a year to establish before blooming. Clumps may need dividing every 4–5 years.

Blooming begins in the first real heat of late May or early June, here in central Maine. Rebloomers may have a second bloom later in the season depending on climate and cultivation methods—deadheading helps.

Bearded Irises ship early September only.

Last date to order Bearded Iris is Friday, August 16.
